I suppose it is a good time to re-evaluate the reasons for law school, the bar exam, and 'lawyering.'First consider that there is in the proximity of 750,000, or more, lawyers currently practicing in the US. That number does not include law school grads who haven't been admitted to the Bar and lawyers who do not have an active license to practice. Why would I consider all of that debt for an education? Does the US really need more lawyers?It is a scary thought, since people, including lawyers, are retiring at a later age--hence the number of lawyers is likely to increase at a faster rate.Perhaps the US doesn't need more lawyers; it seems some law firms are too busy and others not busy enough. But,the constantly changing society requires new things .Perhaps the US needs a different type of lawyer.
